    Very cool! I think that the checker illusion is a good demonstration of the complexity involved in the pixel shading of our games. We don't always see what we think that we see, and to get 3D objects to look real, there must be a lot of these tricks played on our eyes.

    Thanks

    Very insightful stuff. Gave me a clue for shading when skinning. Can now use the fill tool in PSP and apply the basic principal of greys and blacks to a gradient fill. Will come in very handy for top down veiwing of fuselages and getting that weathering look just right. Thanks for the link. It is a trick of the trade I will employ.

    Try surrounding square "B" with post-its. Even with only one white square showing on the checkerboard pattern the brain wants to see it a lighter shade but as soon as all the surrounding white squares are covered it's exactly the same as square "A."

    Very impressive site. I'll have to send this to some of my friends. Yes, I do have a few. Your title was a bit misleading though, "OT, a little something for the eyes". I was, shall we say, expecting something a little bit racier if you know what I mean, and I'm sure you do
